LIBRA Sloped – Limited Edition

Libra-Sloped-Gold-Limited

The Epicyclic Skeleton Clock

At its heart, LIBRA, is a 10-day spring-driven pendulum clock. One of the interesting and unusual features found in this timepiece refers to its train, which is actually an epicyclic (planetary gearing) one. The motion work is based on the Ferguson Mechanical Paradox which avoids the need for a 12 to 1 gear train between the hour hand and the minute hand.

Perhaps, the most evident change that occurred, in order to be different from the original design, is the substitution of the metal case with two glass plates which give an impression as if the clock mechanism is suspended mid-air.

COLLECTION

Such a solution allows for the possibility to make the core element visible to the audience, inviting them to look at the clock differently, from a new perspective, thus appreciating its pure mechanism and maybe discovering something new and intriguing for themselves. William Strutt’s clock traditionally mounted the recoil escapement which, after a series of calculations, we substituted with the Graham one. The piece thus delivers a more precise performance.

The Invar pendulum which in the original version is linked at the back, is moved to the left side of the clockwork to enhance its aesthetical appeal. It was done for those clock lovers who never want to miss its constant and gentle motion.

Islamic Timepieces

For years Muslims have relied on many ways to tell them the time for prayers and for breaking the fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Checking the timings on the daily newspaper, turning on the radio or television, installing an Islamic timings application and even observing the sun! But the latest and coolest way to know your timings is with specialized luxury timepieces made for Muslims. Created by Archides Uhren GmbH in Salzburg, the Austrian company has created timepieces specially made for Muslims. The collection features three amazing unique pieces.
